We’re on such a roll here lately, I may as well keep it going. This is Manny’s 1979 Nishiki International.
Hi, this is my first submission to OTS,
It’s a 1979 Nishiki International. This bike belonged to a friend of friend who bought it new. At some point he quit riding it and stored it in an attic for at least a couple of decades! Rolled up me sleeves, cleaned her up, replaced the tires/tubes, and cables. Lubed/oiled the chain, all the bearings etc. Wrapped the bar with Newbaum’s cotton tape, hemp twined the ends and coated with amber shellac. I hate the foam bar/grip tape these bikes originally came with! I’ve got the toe clips but need to replace the leather straps and it’ll be 100% complete.
Cheers, Manny in AZ
